Dental implants are designed to provide a secure foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. If you are among the many Americans who suffer from permanent tooth loss, you can eliminate the problems and discomfort caused by poorly fitting dentures or missing teeth. You can begin to discover the joy of eating healthy, speaking clearly, feeling confident and laughing comfortably! With dental implants, you can rediscover the comfort and confidence to enjoy your life. Dental implants are designed to provide you with a natural looking and functioning smile.
Did you know that even the loss of one tooth might result in the tipping, drifting and erupting of neighboring and opposing teeth? The loss of several teeth can result in the inability to chew and speak effectively. It can also lead to the collapse of your bite causing stress on your jaw joints and facial muscles. There may be a reduction in the vertical dimension of your face resulting in an older facial appearance and noticeable facial lines. Dr. First considers all these factors when determining how best to achieve dental aesthetics that are in harmony with your physiology.
Dental Implants are the closest solution to replacement of natural teeth. They are comprised of two components:
1. An Implant portion which replaces the root portion of the tooth.
2. The crown portion replacing the visible tooth (above the gums).
Dental implants are currently the gold standard for tooth replacement. They look and feel like natural teeth and can last a lifetime with proper care. Dental Implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss that allows you to regain a natural-looking and healthy smile. Like natural teeth, implants stimulate the jaw and stop bone loss. The benefits are lifelong: firm and safe support for your teeth and prevention of further bone loss.
